Ohio, a corporation of Ohio
Application October 14,1937, Serial No. 168,879
5 Claims.
This invention pertains to cartons or contain
ers formed by folding from blanks or sheets of
?ber-board or other material and, more par
ticularly, to a carton peculiarly adapted to hold
5 and retain, for shipment, display and handling,
various articles such as soap, bottles and the like
which need substantial protection against break
age and dis?gurement during transportation and
other handling.’
10
One of the primary objects of the invention,
therefore, is to provide a carton of such con
struction that the articles it may contain will
be secure therein against damage through rough
or careless handling.
15
‘
Another of the primary objects is to provide a
carton so constructed and arranged that it will
employ a minimum amount of material with a
minimum amount of waste and a minimum of‘
labor in its manufacture, and one which may be
20 shipped in unfolded ‘or “knocked-down” condi
tion to be folded or “set-up” at its destination or
point of use, the construction also being such that
the unfolded or “knocked-down” cartons will oc
cupy a minimum amount of shipping space for a
25 given quantity of cartons.
Still another important object is to provide a
carton construction of such character that the
part thereof actually vutilized to receive and to
hold the particular commodity packaged there
v30 in may be made from a single blank or sheet of
?ber-board or other suitable material, an en
closing tube or cover, if desired or utilized, being
composed from another single blank or sheet of
the same or some other material. In this connec
35 tion it should be understood that the part of the
carton which is to carry the commodity, as dis
tinguished ‘from the covering tube or jacket, may
be utilized alone' as a carton or container and
without any cover or jacket or with a mere wrap
_
40 ping of “cellophane” or the like.
A further object is to provide a novel carton
constructed from a single sheet or blank of fiber
board or other material and in which the sides
and ends are re-enforced and, in e?ect, padded
45 by formation in box-like section to absorb shocks
and blows which might otherwise injure the car
ton contents. In this connection it is to be noted
that the preferred construction is such that the
carton when folded into its proper form from
50 the blank, is self-sustaining and self-contained
so that it is not dependent upon auxiliary means
to hold its various sections in proper shape and
relation to one another.
I
And, among other objects, is provision of a
55 carton in the form of a tray ‘orv similar receptacle
(Cl. 229-19)
particularly'suitable for the reception and reten
tion for display and other purposes of bars. or
cakes of soap, the provision of a carton having
an article receiving well into which commodities
such as cakes or bars of soap whether wrapped
or not, may be ?itted snugly and frictionally held
therein, and the provision of a neat, compact and
easily handled carton.
Many other objects as well as the uses and nu
merous advantages of the invention should be ap
parent and understood after reading the follow
ing description and claims and after viewing the '
drawings in which:
,
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a preferred form
of the invention showing the tray or body part of 15.
the carton partially withdrawn from the enclos
ing tube or jacket part.
Fig. 2 is a perspective view of an end portion of
tray or body part with some of the sections fold
ed into formed position and other sections in open 20
or unfolded position but ready to be'folded.
Fig. 3 is another perspective view of the end
portion shown in Fig._ 2 but with the end wall
folded into shape except for a broken part the
better illustrating the construction and folding 25
sequence.
a
Fig. 4 is a section through an end wall taken
along the section line IV-IV of Fig. 1.
Fig. 5 is a developed view of the carton tray or
body part or, in other words, a plan view of a
sheet or blank as cut and scored ready to be
folded into shape, and
_
Fig. 6 is a small scale view in plan of the blan
or sheet from which the tube or jacket part of the
carton is to be formed and showing the score 35
lines along which folding is to occur.
Referring ?rst to Figs. 1 and 6 it will be noted
that the tube or jacket part generally designated
A may be formed‘ from a single blank cut in the
shape shown in Fig. 6. Dotted lines 1, 8, 9 and 40
I1 indicate score lines or lines along which the
folding is to occur and segregate the blank into
bottom and top wall sections,’ i2 and I3, respec
tively, side wall sections l4 and I5, and a sealing
?ap i6 upon which glue or other adhesive may
be placed for securing the same to the inside
face of the side wall section l5. As the blank is
illustrated with its outside surface toward the
observer, the folding will carry the folded sec
tions away from the observer. The tube or jacket 50
is made in such dimensions as snubly to receive
the tray part with a sliding ?t therein and may
extend for the full length of the tray or ter
minate beyond or short of the ends thereof as
desired. The jacket or tube cover may be shipped 55
2,182,967
in blank form for folding at the place of use or
it may be pre-folded at the place of manufacture
and then folded down ?at at'diagonally opposite
corners'and shipped in that condition.
The tray (or body part generally designated B
. in Fig. 1, is formed by folding from a blank such
as that illustrated in Fig. 5,. The blank com
prises a bottom wall section l1, 2. top wall sec
33, 34, 35 and 36 are all folded in the same direc
tion into the shape best illustrated in Fig. 4 and
moved into the pre-fermed ends of the tube.
The tab ?aps 52 are then folded in against the
outer faces of segments 33 and, thereafter, the
end cover flaps 38 are folded thereover and the
tabs 45 are inserted or tucked through the slits
31 as best illustrated in Figs. 3 and 4. This coin
tion l8, side wall sections l9 and 2|, and a side
pletes each end ‘except for the flap segments 48'
wall sealing ?ap 22 upon one face of which an
which may be bent down as illustrated in Figs.
adhesive may be applied for securing the flap to
2 and ‘i.
the inside face ‘or surface of side wall section 2|.
The sections and ?ap mentioned are segregated
by score or folding lines 23, 24, 25 and are ink
tended to be folded away from‘ the observer
The box-section side walls are formed from
the segments or parts 41 and 5| of the top wall
(viewing Fig. 5) into
shape.
The bottom, top and side wall sections are gen
erally rectangular in shape and the ends of each
are provided with integral portions to be utilized,
20 in constructing the end walls and in securing the
ends in closed position. As previously indicated
the carton isprcvided with box=section side and
end walls for protection of the contents and to
this end each longitudinal end of the bottom
25" wall section I‘! has a projecting portion generally
designated 21 adapted to form the end walls and
is divided by score lines 28, 29, 3| and 32 into
segments or parts 33, 34, 35 and 36 the purpose and use of which will later appear, and, along
30 the score line 23, has pre-formed slits 31 which
' receive fastening tabs as will also appear herein=
after.v Segments or parts 34, 35 and ,36 are
slightly reduced in their lengths at each end tc
provide clearance from adjacent parts as will be
35 understood as the description unfolds.
The top wali section |8 has a projecting end
wall cover ?ap or portion 38 at each end segre
gated irom the body ofthe top section by a score‘
line 39 and each portion 38 carries a pair of tabs
45) 40 segregated by score lines 4| and adapted to be
tucked. or inserted through the slits 31 when the
blank has'been folded. Extending‘ for a substan
tial distance along the longitudinal center line or
axis of symmetry of the top section and of a slight
45 width is a pre=formed slot 42 which at each of its
, opposite ends is flared or widened outinto trian
gular shape as shown at 43 with the bases of the
triangles parallel to the score lines. 39. The sides
of the triangle lie‘ along lines substantially bisect
ing the adjacent corners of the top section, in the
embodiment shown, and slits 44 extend from the
, slots 43 outwardly along said bisecting lines for
a substantial distance. The slots 42, 43 and the
slits 44 together with longitudinal score lines 45
55 and transverse score lines 46, de?ne segments or
parts 41 and 48, the former of which, in turn, are
divided by score lines 49 to provide parts 5|. ' ri‘he
functions and purposes of these parts will ap
pear later. Each side wall section, l9 and 2|,
60 has a tab ?ap 52 at each end segregated from its
section by a score line 53.
The dimensions of the
various sections and parts are so proportioned
and chosen as to prcvide the correspondence and
registration thereof necessary to ‘compose the
65 completed carton as . illustrated but, of course,
these details will be apparent to those skilled in
the art.
'
-
In folding the blank to form the carton it may
' be preferable to .execute the first folding along
70 score lines 23, 24, 25 and '26 to form a tube, the
adhesive on ?ap 22 securing this ?ap and side
wall 2| together. Thereafter it is relatively
immaterial whether the box-section end walls
or the box-section side walls next be formed.
If
75. the end walls be chosen, the segments, or parts
'
l8, these segments being folded in the same direc
tion along score lines 45 and 49 to the positions
shown in ‘Fig. 2. It will be observed that the car
_-ton thus constructed provides a well in the top of _
the tray part into which articles such as cakes of
soap may be disposed fordisplay or other pur
poses, the slight tendency of the box-section side 20
walls and of the flap segments 48 to return to
their original positions with respect to the top,
‘serving to an extent to exert sufficient frictional
e?ect upon the articles contained in the well as
to secure ‘the articles relatively ?rmly therein. 25
Of course, the dimensions of the carton will be
so chosen as to provide a snug or other proper ?t
for the articles to be received therein.
The carton is not only strong and secure and
able to protect its contents but is attractive in 30'
appearance and simple to construct as well as
economical and relatively inexpensive. It will be
observed that the segments 54 and 55 included
between score lines 25-45 and 39-46, respec
tively, provide marginal framing about the well 35
in the top section which lends attractiveness as
well as utilityr to the construction. The widths of
segments 55, preferably are the same as the
widths of segments 34 and 36 while the widths of
segments 33 and 35 are equal and adapted to 40
bring segment 34 snugly beneath and into sup
porting contact with the bottom faces'of seg
ments 55. Likewise segments 5| and 54 are sub
stantially equal, preferably, with one another in
width so that segments 41 will stand perpendicu 45
lar to the bottom wall I‘! and parallel tn the
segments I9 and 2|.
While I have illustrated and described a pre
ferred embodiment of the invention, it will be
appreciated and understood that’ variations and 50
modi?cations may be made without departing
from the spirit of the invention and the scope
of the app-ended claims.
